Bedross Der Matossian's "The Horrors of Adana"

Bedross Der Matossian is Associate Professor of History at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. He is the author of Shattered Dreams of Revolution: From Liberty to Violence in the Late Ottoman Empire (2014).

He applied the “Page 99 Test” to his new book, The Horrors of Adana: Revolution and Violence in the Early Twentieth Century, and reported the following:
If you open page 99 it will describe the ways in which the massacres began due to a minor altercation between an Armenian and three Muslims. This means that without page 99, it will be difficult to understand how the massacres began.
